You can make a very simple forge from a galvanized farm trough and some pipe, and fire it with charcoal. Not the store bought briquettes, but charcoal you make in a small campfire. Check out Tim and Marian Lively for some ideas: http://www.livelyknives.com/
Hi Ann. So you always wanted to make knives? Well, what's stopping you? Coming from a jewelry background, I can tell you, it's a blast. A lot of careful work, more than jewelry, but when you finish one, you feel elated.
Welcome to crafthaus, the network for artists, craftsmen/women ! I am very glad you joined us !
Please add your thoughts to the blogs and discussion forums that are already posted. Of course, if there is something else you'd much rather talk about, please add that to the site so that the rest of us can chime in.
